 AALL Annual Meeting

The Michigan Association of Law Libraries has a total membership of 89.

Members were provided with two opportunities to get together during the 2007-2008 year. The first event was purely social with a dinner held Wednesday, October 17th at Gilbert & Blake's Seafood and Steak Grille in Okemos, MI. Approximately 25 members attended this event. 43 Members attended the Annual Business Meeting and Educational Program “Permanent Access and Change” held May 16, 2008, hosted by the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, Grand Rapids Campus. Morning sessions dealt with the AALL Authentication Report Permanent Access to Legal Information and featured Mary Alice Baish, AALL Acting Affairs Representative as the keynote speaker. Luncheon speaker, Darcy Kirk, AALL Secretary, provided the membership with an update on AALL activities and initiatives. The afternoon speaker, Barbara Bintliff Director of the Law Library and Professor of Law; Nicholas Rosenbaum Professor of Law University of Colorado School of Law, talked about writing memos to effect change. The spring meeting was coordinated by the Education Committee: Aletha Honsowitz, Janet Hedin, Marlene Coir and Veronica Foster.

MichALL began to research the possibility of providing some type of scholarship. A special committee was formed to look at this and will continue to research this issue in 2008-2009 before making a recommendation to the Board.
